There’s lots of construction happening on various city roads.

Acadia News reached out to Kayla Dixon, who is the city’s Director of Engineering & Operations for an update.

Central Ave

  • Paving on Central Ave is being completed this year from Fort William Rd to the Overpass and should be finishing up soon

River St Sinkhole

  • Council approved more cash for the project to pre-purchase of material to repair the culverts and to tender and award the construction to the lowest qualified bid to facilitate the repairs of the culverts this year
  • Delivery of materials will still delay the start of work into the fall.
  • River St will remain closed until construction is complete

Road Aesthetics

  • Line painting on arterial and collector roadways began in the spring and will continue throughout the summer
  • Crosswalks and stop bars around schools will be done near the end of August so it looks fresh before the school year begins
  • The Pride crosswalks at Donald/May & Algoma/Bay were completed last week using thermoplastics
  • Street sweeping on arterial and collector roadways is complete
  • Residential sweeping is expected to be completed within the next two weeks

The City posts is roadwork updates here as well.
